Novenas For A Lost Hospital - 2019 - Off-Broadway

Novenas for a Lost Hospital is inspired by those who dedicated their lives to care and those who were lost. Guided by Elizabeth Seton of the Sisters of Charity (Chalfant), the piece theatrically explores the 161-year history of the hospital. Novenas uses theater as a vehicle to remember, to honor, and to celebrate the life and impact of St. Vincent's Hospital.

The piece will begin with a prologue at St. John's in the Village and culminate with an epilogue in the streets of the West Village and ending at the AIDS memorial on the former site of St. Vincent's Hospital.
